Lavender farms can be found in various parts of Washington State. The largest cluster is on the northeast corner of the Olympic Peninsula, near the town of Sequim and the surrounding Dungeness Valley. This area is widely known for premium lavender. Visitors come from around the world to experience the beauty of this fragrant valley during the lavender harvest season.
Known as “America’s Provence” after the famous region in France, the Dungeness Valley also has an ideal climate for growing lavender. Located in the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains, these farms enjoy the abundant sunshine and low rainfall (17 inches per year–about the same as Los Angeles).
The following Washington lavender farms are family-owned. They make a great day trip or weekend getaway for those who live in the Seattle-Tacoma metro area. While lavender blooms in mid-summer, the area is also a destination for hiking, bird watching, waterfalls, history, wine tasting, and more.

Dungeness Valley attractions and things to do
Here are some of the sights to see in and around the town of Sequim. These can extend your stay, whether a quick getaway or a long weekend.
Olympic Discovery Trail (ODT) along the northern edge of the Olympia Peninsula is a national regional trail that combines railroad right-of-way, rural corridors, low traffic side roads, and highway shoulder. Beginning at the town of Port Townsend, the ODT stretches westward to the Pacific Coast and the tribal community of La Push. It is the westernmost segment of the Great American Rail Trail, which extends across the United States from coast to coast. The trail is suitable for runners, walkers, and non-motorized traffic, including equestrians in some sections. The ODT is still under development and will eventually cover a distance of 130 miles, more than 80 of which are in place.
- Highlights of the ODT include Discovery Bay, Sequim Bay, the rural Dungeness River area, Port Angeles waterfront, Elwha River, the north shore of Lake Crescent, and the forested landscape of the western Olympic Peninsula.
Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge is open to the public year-round for hiking, wildlife viewing, and photography. Some portions are closed seasonally or permanently to protect sensitive species. The area is a stopping point for migrating shorebirds in spring and fall and provides calm waters for wintering waterfowl. The isolated beach shields harbor seals and their pups. And abundant eelgrass beds support young salmon and steelhead. To ensure that wildlife continues to have a peaceful place to rest and feed, certain recreational activities such as swimming, jogging, and other beach activities are allowed only in selected areas during certain times of the year. Pets, recreational activities including camping, and fires are not permitted on the Refuge as they are a disturbance for the wildlife taking solitude on the Refuge.
Dungeness River Audubon Center is an educational and interpretive center for the natural area of the Dungeness River. Visitors can see local taxidermied animals, check out the native plant garden, and see the railroad bridge. Spring 2022 note- The building is currently under construction and should reopen in June- the outdoor area, garden, and bridge are open.
Railroad Bridge Park follows a historic rail line across a rare wooden-truss bridge that spans more than 730 feet across the scenic Dungeness River. The park also features riverside trails, picnic tables, and the Dungeness River Audubon Center offering exhibits and year-round programs for the whole family. Free guided walks are a wonderful way to experience the park through the eyes of an expert. For more information, visit the WTA Railroad Bridge Park hiking guide.
Elwha River was an essential source of food and water to Indigenous tribes in the area. The construction of dams in the early 1900s has drastically altered the ecosystem. Since the 1990’s, conservation efforts are in place to help bring the salmon back and heal the land. Visitors to the area can see the changing ecosystem and may even get a chance to see a river otter!
- Madison Falls is easily accessible. The trailhead starts right after you enter Olympic National Park near Elwha. Enjoy this paved trail, ending at the beautiful falls.
